Re: what does the reversal kit consist of
As far as I know there isn't any "kit" needed to switch a door. It's just a matter of taking out a bunch of screws, reversing some door parts, and putting it all back together. Here's a link that shows how to do it for one model which is typical:
About all you need is a phillips-head driver and maybe a small putty knife to pry out the filler plugs from the holes you'll be using.

you model number is missing a letter I'm guessing its a MDB9100awb. They don't make them like they use to, where you can just flip them around nor you have to order a whole new front.

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

Hi Wendy, this is AP
I understand you want to reverse the door opening on your Electrolux dryer. I would be happy to assist you with those instructions. Are you able to provide the model number for your dryer? If this is a new dryer you may visit the manufacture website, locate your appliance, scroll down to bottom and you will see a listing of documents available, the installation instruction manual will have the reversal instructions listed. . I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect if you have additional information regarding your question.
Duet dryer doors cannot be reversed for the swing. They wil only open one way. Depending on your model of washer the newers ones will allow you to reverse the door swing without a kit. The older units require a kit to reverse the washer door.
Is the latch and strike still intact ? If it is, you should hear or feel a distinct "click" when closing the door. if that is ok but the door simply won't stay latched, I'd suspect a bent door or hinge assembly. if it isn't ok, you can get a latch and strike in a kit #279570, the most common kit for kenmore/whirlpool dryers over the past 30-35yrs. or so. It will also work in most other makes too. your unit may also have a "spare" latch built into it for door reversal, but not the "strike". you may be able to straighten the door or hinge by removing the door and examining what's bent and correct it. either way, you need to first identify what is bent/or out of alignment.
